I want to personally thank each and every one of you motorists for your continued patience as you manage commutes to and from work, school, volunteer assignments, and appointments requiring use of Howard/Man and MLK/Perkins/SR59.
Like many motorists, my daily route takes me to this intersection and I feel the longer-than normal delays. It has forced me to plan ahead and leave much earlier.
I want you to know that I understand and share the frustration of motorists, and I also remind you that this single closure allows the City of Akron to strategically combine and complete two major projects and helps us achieve progress in several key areas – sewer infrastructure, traffic safety, neighborhood connection and downtown development.
You are encouraged to continue to visit www.DriveAkron.com or call the Mayor’s Action Center at (330) 375-2311 or 3-1-1. Once again thank you for understanding as we move toward a better city infrastructure.
AKRON MAYOR DAN HORRIGAN
